Simeon’s Answer

Try to break things up into sizable chunks. Study well ahead of time, setting aside at least ten or fifteen minutes a week for important tests. Try not to cram for tests, but if you do, try to take a five minute break at least once an hour. Even just studying five minutes a day can really do the trick if you do it consistently. Make study friends that will help you stay on track, clarify confusing points, and can quiz you. Try out the Quizlet app for some amazing free resources; they often already have flashcards for the course you're studying for, easy to use on your phone. Lastly, see about getting a study-work job in the library or the dorm. You can often get permission to study during work if everything is quite during your shift.

Matthew’s Answer

Hi Mekenzie!

Great question! My best two study tips are organization and being actively involved in what I'm studying.

Organization: Find whatever organization style fits you best. Try out different styles before you settle on one. I personally like taking my notes in an outline format instead of regular bullet points. I then go back to my notes after class and fill in whatever I may have missed. I also respond to the notes I have taken. This leads me to my second takeaway...

Actively study: What I mean by this is responding to your notes and material. Ask questions, draw comparisons, differences, and conclusions. I think actually writing these out is more beneficial than just thinking about them. I also found explaining what you are studying to someone else, even if they already know the material, to be helpful. Help each other fill in the gaps.

And finally, don't procrastinate. Work with your material frequently and work with it early. Don't save everything until the last minute, it will only add stress and minimize material retention.

I hope this helps!

Dawn’s Answer

Here are a few ways that have worked for me:

- Break the task down into manageable chunks A big task, such as writing a dissertation, or revising for an extended period, can be demotivating because it seems so big. Breaking the task down into manageable chunks can therefore help make it seem less daunting.
- Keep your end goal in mind but also use interim goals on the way. One of the best ways to stay motivated is to remember why you are studying in the first place.
- Get into a study routine. It is generally easier to stay motivated if your studying becomes part of your everyday life and routine.
- Don’t let your studying take over your life. When you start a long course of study, whether a degree course or a period of study for professional exams, it can feel like it is all-important. This is especially true when exams loom. However, it is important not to allow your studying to take over your life.

I hope that you find value in these.
